The Louvre

If you are short on time, the Louvre is an excellent location with incredible architecture and multiple facades. The former royal residence borders The Tuileries Garden and Palais Royal, offering an amazing variety of backdrops for your photos. Bad weather? Not to worry — the dramatic (covered) passageways are the perfect shelter for a rainy day in Paris.

The Eiffel Tower

It surely doesn’t get more iconic than this historical landmark. Place du Trocadéro offers a stunning view of the Eiffel Tower that is perfect for a sunrise shoot (sans tourists). The Seine river bank offers an equally lovely scenic view of Paris’ architectural jewel.

Île Saint-Louis

This delightful island is the oldest part of the city and it doesn’t get more charming than its narrow cobblestoned streets and idyllic views of the Notre Dame. It is the perfect location for a more paired-back look — think flowing dresses with beautiful movement.
